I write stories & articles inspired by all eras of history & science... so I wind up putting notetaking software like Obsidian & Readwise thru their paces.

Plugin News

New in Community Plugins

These plugins went through code review and are now available in Obsidian's plugin list. For the full list, check out the plugin stats page.

  • Task Marker by @wenlzhang will let users complete, cancel and mark tasks, as well as cycle among selected task statuses, with hotkeys and a context menu.

Pending (as of Friday morning)

Note: Not all new plugins are available in the community list yet, as they need to go through code review first. You can manually install plugins that aren't in the community list yet by using the Beta Reviewer's Auto-update Tool. Note, though, that this is not as safe as waiting for them to go through code review.

Ancillary Code




  • You may have heard that there was a bank run on Silicon Valley Bank. Given the demographics of this community I have to assume at least some folks were impacted. Words are relatively useless in a situation like this, but I'm wishing everyone the best and hoping that Monday brings good news.

Note: There are a couple of affiliate links & codes scattered around, but these always come from links I was already recommending and usually I share them because they benefit you too (i.e. getting you extra time on trials).
